If you're searching for cars with the biggest discounts, look no further. We analyzed hundreds of rebates, discounts, and unadvertised new car incentives to uncover the best deals on cars, trucks, and SUVs. The biggest rebates in September are worth up to 14% off MSRP.

More brands have been cutting incentives due to an inventory shortage. Although new car prices are high these days, manufacturer rebates can result in up to $9,000 in savings on your next new car. Here are some of the biggest rebates you can get in September.

SUVs With The Biggest Rebates

The 2021 Buick Enclave offers a $4,250 rebate on most styles this month, significantly more than other premium midsize SUVs. If you finance with GM, you can get an additional $500 off for $4,750 in savings. Current Buick or GMC owners may qualify for a $500 loyalty discount.

That's $5,250 in savings or nearly 13% off MSRP in the case of the Buick Enclave Preferred. You won't find a deal that good on an Acura MDX. Your alternative is 0% APR for 72 months on the Enclave, so be sure to consider your options carefully with your local dealer.

    Jeep is offering rebates worth up to $5,250 on the 2-row Grand Cherokee here in California. At the moment, this ranks as one of the largest discounts on a midsize SUV with up to 14% off MSRP on a Grand Cherokee Laredo. To get the full amount, you'll have to finance through Chrysler Capital to get $1,000 in bonuses.

    Big discounts on subcompact SUVs aren't all that common. Fortunately, the value-oriented 2021 Hyundai Venue offers a $1,500 cash incentive that can equate to a 7.5% discount off MSRP. That's a big deal because models like this have razor-thin profit margins and see little to no discounting from dealers.

    Cars With The Biggest Rebates

    Audi's biggest sedan has one of the largest discounts on any car. The A8 offers a massive $9,000 Customer Credit, the best deal to date on this model. Meanwhile, competitors like the BMW 7-Series offer no such incentives.

    Alternatively, Audi Financial is offering 0.49% APR for 60 months. While that's certainly a great rate, we think most buyers will save the most money by taking the rebate. Check with your local dealers for complete details.

    Luxury car buyers may not be accustomed to seeing rebates from a brand like Lexus. However, we think the popular ES sedan is definitely worth a look at this point in the fall car sale season. Unlike a normal rebate, this month's deal involves a $4,500 APR Bonus for financing the all-wheel-drive model.

    Even better, you can stack this with 1.9% APR for 60 months. Prefer something greener? The ES Hybrid currently ranks among the best leases on a luxury car.

      Once again, Jaguar is offering impressive savings on the sleek F-TYPE lineup. Opting for a V8 style can currently get you as much as a $10,000 discount off MSRP.

      The downside is that, rather than being a rebate, this is a form of dealer cash incentive that you may not see advertised. That's quite a bit better than the $8,000 incentive available this month on most other configurations.

      Trucks With The Biggest Rebates

      The RAM 1500 Classic features the largest rebates on any truck. Here in California, the Warlock Quad Cab offers up to $4,750 in savings when financing with Chrysler Capital. In contrast, the Ford F-150 features no rebates whatsoever unless you're planning to trade-in a vehicle.
